    I am having issues with the VSS and system state backups on some of my TSM clients. How can i disable those componets and setup Windows to dump to disk and backup that information with the incremental backups?

    I don't think you can, if I remember correctly TSM needs the VSS service running for backups.

    But, I could be wrong.... Where is that Moon guy when you need him.

    I you haven't got the answer yet:

    Add the following lines in your dsm.opt file for the Windows 2003 server

    DOMAIN all-local -systemstate -systemservices

    This will skip the systemstate and systemservices backup.

    I am still here!

    Hi Brockly71,

    On the client GUI...select "Edit"..."Preferences"...then choose the "Backup" tab...click on the highlighted "systemstate" on the "Domain list'. Choose apply...and then Ok. Restart the scheduler & Tsm service.
